HFF announces the sale of Westway Plaza, a newly constructed, premier,
Class AA office building totaling 313,420 square feet in Houston, Texas.

The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of Transwestern Development
Co., and procured the buyer, The Aztec Fund, Inc., a private Mexican
equity fund.

Westway Plaza is situated on 9.85 acres at 11330 Clay Road at its
intersection with the Sam Houston Tollway in Houston's West Belt
Corridor. The property has direct access to major thoroughfares,
including Interstate 10, U.S. 290 and the Grand Parkway, and is
proximate to an abundant and talented labor pool. Completed in 2015, the
LEED® Gold building provides maximum energy efficiency throughout its
virtually column-less floor plates that feature floor-to-ceiling glass
windows and nine-foot six-inch finished ceiling heights. Market leading
amenities at Westway Plaza include a state-of-the-art fitness center
with locker rooms, an on-site café, a 1,186-space attached structured
parking garage and 24-hour security. Westway Plaza is fully leased to
three tenants: General Electric Corporation, Superior Energy Services
and TESCO Corporation.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included senior
managing director Jeff Hollinden and analyst Dane Petersen.

This is The Aztec Fund's first purchase in the Houston market,
complementing properties purchased in Dallas, Denver and Pittsburgh.
Charles Haddad, Aztec's President and CEO commented, "We are very
excited about entering the Houston market! This will definitely not be
our only purchase in this amazing city. Thanks to HFF and Transwestern
for making this a truly successful transaction."

Holliday GP Corp. ("HFF") is a Texas licensed real estate broker.
